BBQ Stakes Handicap at Woden

This morning I went to the gym for some strength work followed by a Body Balance class and a catch up with Miranda. Then I changed into my running gear and drove over to the south side for the BBQ Stakes run. My handicap is now 6 minutes. Last week it was 3:45. As this is the first Wednesday of the month the course was run in the opposite direction and Brian Wenn volunteered to run with me so I wouldn't get lost! However, there were plenty of people around to follow and after the first steep hill Brian zoomed ahead although he did turn to check I was ok. It was ideal conditions, a bit cool to start but the sun was struggling through and it was great running weather. I managed to run just 10 seconds faster than last week so I'm very gradually getting faster.
Distance: 6km
Time taken: 35:30 (according to Gandalf - last week 35:40 officially)


  1. well done. You'll probably find like I did that reverse is usually faster. But clockwise catches up sooner or later.

  2. Well done. Was it a primer for the Canberra Times Fun Run this Sunday??

  3. That's good! 6-minute ks on training runs will help return your legs to springiness.
